Ann Marie Auricchio uses the language of painting to explore a deeper perception of time, place and the complexities of emotional and cognitive associations we make with our world. Auricchio’s paintings materialize from the convergence of frenetic energy, environment, light/shadow, obsession, anxiety, meditation, history, memory, and a pure visceral response to both physical and psychological places. The creation of Auricchio’s work relies on a balance of experiences and observations from both inside and outside of the studio.
Ann Marie Auricchio earned her BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 1994. She has participated in solo and group exhibitions in New York, Maryland, Colorado, and Louisiana and is a recipient of the 2021 Joan Mitchell Artists-in-Residence Program. Auricchio has also worked extensively as a scenic artist nationally on film, television, and theatrical productions and is the owner of AM Creative Finishes LLC.
